11 Weeks to Go!
I still have so much to do. I’m glad that I pretty much finished up my registry…I have a couple of more things to add and take away but for the most part I’m pretty much done!
And the nursery? Well let’s not even begin on the nursery. See me and B were already thinking about moving in together (I was also talking about getting my own place but I didn’t want to spend money on rent someplace else when I spent so much time with him at his house) so when we found out about Bean we were like okay so we’re definitely moving in together. I still haven’t finished unpacking. B has so many clothes and I have so much
crap stuff so I’ve been unpacking slowly with all my stuff either already in storage or in the nursery. Well it feels like every time I get stuff out of the nursery something new goes into it. And with 11 weeks to go it’s stressing me out a little. I think I’m going to make next week my absolutely must get this room finished week. Because I’m just going to get bigger so it’s going to be harder to do projects and when I have my baby shower I want to actually have a spot to put all his stuff…Wouldn’t that be nice? And with the holidays coming I’m seriously running out of time.
So here’s what’s going on this week:
How your baby’s growing:
Your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 pounds (like a butternut squash) and is a tad over 15 inches long from head to heel. His muscles and lungs are continuing to mature, and his head is growing bigger to make room for his developing brain. To meet his increasing nutritional demands, you’ll need plenty of protein, vitamins C, folic acid, and iron. And because his bones are soaking up lots of calcium, be sure to drink your milk (or find another good source of calcium, such as cheese, yogurt, or enriched orange juice). This trimester, about 250 milligrams of calcium are deposited in your baby’s hardening skeleton each day.
And How am I feeling?
I’m still feeling good, just tired like always. And after I eat I always feel a little uncomfortable it’s like I’m all stuffed up and I just feel FULL but a weird full because part of it is Bean too. I don’t know how to explain it.
Anyway…as I mentioned the other day I left the cord to upload my pictures in VA so those will have to wait till I get back! Sorry to disappoint!
